Also, as Chris Johnson just reminded me on twitter, we should all be sending massive "Thank-You" cards to Josh Gorges right now.

It should also remind us why, ultimately, Nonis should not be the GM of this team anymore.

I agree and everything but this sort of thing is what I think Nonis is fine at. If he's just calling around the league and gauging players values and scouting amateurs then fine. I don't want him doing the rebuilding but I think he can manage the tearing down.

Two pending UFAs turned into a 1st and a decent prospect? I'm happy with that return.

I really liked Santorelli, but not enough to keep him. I agree with Nik; it'd be crazy not to trade him.

Looks like a very reasonable return to me.
As mentioned, this ups our tank game and brings back a 1st and flippable assets. I was worried one of our trade bait players would get injured.

This exodus is going better than the one under Fletcher already.

Fletcher started fine, got decent value at the deadline for Antropov, Ponikarovsky Kilger.

Then Finger, Schenn*, Steen, Frogren and Van Ryn happened.

*Burke managed to salvage this, but the initial price to move up 2 spots to get Schenn was high

Your timeline is a little off. They got Stempniak for Steen.

Yeah. The tank-force is getting stronger and stronger.

I'm sure the man ultimately responsible for this disaster cannot make any deals at all without Shanahan, Hunter et al approving it.

Nonis, thank God, is not the GM of this team in responsibilities just in title.
I didn't say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you.

I would hope not. He's currently employed by the Calgary Flames.

Yeah, I changed it to Kilger.

That article last week made some sense in suggesting that the mandate this past summer is different from the new mandate this month.  I can't blame Nonis for trying to cobble together a playoff team roster, if that's what he was told to do.

I like the deal just fine, even if just to get those two off the roster to further help the slide.

For the first time, I actually believe the Leafs are going in a new direction, and I'm encouraged by that.

Leafs get a 1st so I'm happy. Maybe they could have gotten more separately, maybe (probably) not. Either way, they got good value for two pending UFA's. Who knows, maybe they re-sign here. Not too upset about moving Santo -- the Leafs can just find the next MacArthur/Santorelli trying to rediscover themselves on a 1-year deal this summer.

And of course, this surely doesn't make the team better. Which is good. :)

Ponikarovsky and Antropov were both dealt away by Burke. Fletcher moved Kilger, Belak and Gill.

Fletch was Steen for Stempniak too, right?

Still, a second and a fifth for Gill was pretty good. I mean that second ended up being...Jimmy Hayes.

Dammit, Fletcher.
